Love her early work. Hate this album.
on 5 May 2012
OK so artists have to move on and try new things and I suppose full marks to Joan Armatrading for at least attempting something different. Unfortunately I dont get this album at all. On first play I thought "hmmmm don't like this but it may grow on me" .. on 2nd play I realised I hated the album from start to finish . No discernible tunes, trite blues cliche lyrics and Joan's voice reduced to a monotonous shout . One for J.A. die-hards only to fill the gap in the collection. As for me, I'm going back to the "Me myself I" and "Joan Armatrading" albums to hear her do what she does best; real songs, real lyrics.
